    I've had enough of Uber's sly business tactics

    Just look at Uber's built-in maps. They intentionally hide the KM and only show you the minutes so you don't realise just how far you've driven to take somebody to the bus stop.

    This is just one of many dirty tricks Uber uses to deceive drivers and reduce the amount of information drivers have. They don't want you to make informed business decisions. They want you to accept trips regardless of profitability. You don't deserve to know anything as far as they are concerned.

    Clearly Uber likes to treat drivers like drip-fed rats in a maze. That doesn't sit well with me.

    I quit for that very reason.
    I HATE it when companies try to manipulate people.

    Goodbye Uber thanks for nothing.

    Good point. Also their "minutes" aren't accurate. Sometimes a rider is "6 minutes" away but it's a 15 minute drive.

    Yep, press navigate and that 6 min trip can become a heck of a lot more than they told you upfront.

    Depriving and intentionally obstructing an 'independent contractors' ability to see job information is virtually the same as treating them like employees.

    That is why I am no longer doing Uber. I should sue too.

    Come on. You expect a signal from a cell tower to instantly be able to time your trips? Any gps or nav doesnt instantly come up with calcs. The uber app isnt perfect but its freaking amazing as a technology.
